    Simple! Well not really, it can be done with a little work. Remove the headunit. Move the heating controls down, you may have to trim some of the extra plastic on the right. Then you should have enough room for the lilli.

    try it on something other than your car first and you will be amazed at how simple it is.

    otherwise, if you REALLY want to pay someone, let me know what you want done

    otherwise, go to a local stereo shop. you will be charged out the *** for it, but it will be done by someone who should have some experience.....and it's that experience that you are paying for.....that and the time, because fabrication isn't exactly a quick thing...lol

    what he said...it's really not too bad, you would just have to add your own "plastic" (bondo) in areas that needed it and trim that AC unit if you could. it would just be a lot of work is all. I'm not a fan of flip out screens, but I think in this case, it would be much easier to just get a flip out screen from digitalww.com and put it where the stock headunit is.

    Thanks everyone for showing some interest in my post, I figured it would benifit everyone to know of who on the forum is willing to do some work for others heh. After alot of thinking it over, I dont think I'm going to be doing and indash install. The space I have to work with is to complicated (I think) and would require a bunch of relocation of stuff. Here's a pic of what I'm dealing with:

    Ah well back to the drawing board. Wish me luck!

    I don't think its that there isnt any room, but rather... the terrible design of the console itself. Each thing from the top the bottom gets pushed back, so its like a curved dash, which is fine, but terrible for modding. So needless to say, I'm bummed.

    what about molding an entirely new piece? like under the dash but making it so that it looks just like an extension of the dash? kind of like it would be replacing that bottom pocket (am I seeing that right? that is what that is right?) and molding from there?

    I'de be all for that, but hell, that's waaaayy outta my range of knowledge. As for the pocket, thats where the ashtray usto be, I took it out cause I don't smoke and didnt want the girlfriend to get any ideas(she does). If I could figure a way to mold it into the bottom that would be awesome, then it would be outta sight, titled upwards somewhat, and in one of the shadiest spots of the car. hmmmm. but like I said, I've no clue when it comes to this stuff.
